Mini Micro at Maenol

Two traps out last night, Skinner MV and large Heath-type actinic, but together they attracted nothing like the numbers that Steve's did, I could muster only 74 individuals, 20 species.  The only FFYs were Brindled Pug and a very small micro which I almost overlooked on the base of the trap:


I suspect that it's one of the Elachistidae.  Distinctive markings can be seen with a strong hand lens but my photography is not up to providing a good enough image to show them.  It'll have to go down as Elachista sp.
